I fit the ADD-Anxiety-Dysthemia profile. Though I've also had hypomanias, so it's being called BPII. I also suspect my problems are dopamine-related (because I have restless leg syndrome, which is dopamine-related) and LOVE amphetamine-like drugs, like psuedoephedrine, which are basically dopamine-reuptake-inhibitors. In relatively low doses they make me calm and focused, motivated and happy. But not hypomanic happy. HOWEVER - I hated Wellbutrin. Made me agitated and miserable. (Zoloft -- the first thing I tried -- made me basically numb, tired all the time, and not much less depressed). Lamictal gave me mixed results, ultimately more bad than good, so I quit it. I'll be watching this EMSAM stuff closely...
